I've built on the routine..performed it last Friday night and it got gasps! Lots of "no !@#$%^& ways" and "what!!" Always each to their own but I've performed it maybe 6 or 7 times now in my stand up show and everytime it's gone down as the very least well!

The mindreading genuinely looks impossible,people are changing their minds and thinking of different things and yet you still manage to get inside their minds. The reveal of their thoughts is only the begining in my routine. You can take it to far off places after that. Still though everyone has different visions and I can see why maybe it would'nt be for everyone and that's cool too Smile

Sound!

Irrespective of what people are saying on this forum, many copies of 'This Way Up' have appeared in the 'Books for Sale' forum. Does seem that there are a few disappointed buyers out there, willing to part so quickly with their exclusive numbered copies.

I think a lot of people buy magic items,find out the secret and then sell it on to make their money back again. I told think you can judge the quality of the book on the number of copies being re-sold. The people who do re-sell their copies have every right to do so but at the same time they could be very happy with their purchase or then again they may think it was crap who knows Smile

Or maybe they learn (photocopy) the book and sell it for more.

I have not seen one book cheaper than the original price, everyone is selling it for a lot more.

I like this because can be play strong in any setting no exception with nothing to worry about. Great routining. It's good way of showing real mindreading with lots of possibilities. A great addition to any repertoire in my opinion

Perhaps they have constructed the gimmick and made their own presentation, and don´t need the book anymore. You don´t have to be disappointed with a book just because you are selling it.

REVIEW: THIS WAY UP by Paul Brook and Colin McLeod

OK so I promised a review, and I have read the book completely, and here are my thoughts:

I jumped on the bandwagon kind of late, after not knowing whether or not to get this, and I got copy 189 out of 200.

Anyways, here it goes:

Pauls section:

Pauls section is for the closeup worker, and I read it through and just had a smile on my face the whole time.
I can actually picture myself using this routine in my close up work.
Great routining, structure, psychology, every little nuance covered.

10/10

Colins section:

Just as good or even better than Pauls version, I can also see myself using this as well.
I plan on makin up 2 gimmicks, one for stage and one for closeup, cant wait

10/10

After having a read through all I could do was smile, and I am happy I spent the money I did on this limited release.

It is well worth it......maybe not to some, but you have to overlook the gimmick aspect, and concentrate about the performance as a whole, and presentation, and I am sure this will play big and be remembered by the audience.

I will never part with my book.

One of the best investments of 2011.

Thanks

Alex

Exactly , there has been so much on Café about this lately. I do not care if someone sells the book purchased by them...But,they now have the gimmick and the effect to use,as book is sold! Just saying!
Not saying this is what being done !!! This is a limited book in this case,and do not see several hundreds getting it !

They will if the book is past around. Is it ethical to sell the book on when you intend to use the material? You really pay for the right to use the material should you really be selling it if you intend to use it?

Alex's review, above, is exactly what I would say. I will not part with my book, either. I applaud both Paul and Colin for their contribution(s) to our art and their willingness to share their effects and their thinking. This book is an excellent treatise on what goes into making a powerful presentation. To paraphrase the great Lance Armstrong, "It's not about the gimmick"!
